TPI – Travel Professionals International says three of its advisors have graduated from the inaugural class of the Virtuoso Wanderlist Certification.
As members of Virtuoso, TPI advisors have access to Wanderlist, originally called Virtuoso Orchestrator.
Re-launched as Wanderlist and introduced to agency owners and managers at Virtuoso’s 2019 U.S. & Canada Forum in Austin earlier this year, Wanderlist offers curated custom travel portfolios and much more. Virtuoso bills the tool as “a groundbreaking consumer travel planning experience that marries technology with the human touch, encompassing a custom-designed platform and extensive advisor training.”
Through the curation of custom travel portfolios, Wanderlist allows advisors to manage their clients’ future travel proactively based on detailed input from clients themselves, rather than reactively planning one trip at a time. Building on the model of the financial advisor, Wanderlist encourages the client to have greater input into their future travels, while positioning the advisor as a travel planning superstar, says TPI.
TPI advisors Dawn Cove, Diane Cook and Natalia Weidner have completed extensive training sessions to achieve their Wanderlist certification and now join an elite list of 150 certified Wanderlist Advisors globally.
Caroline Hay, Director of Marketing & Sales Engagement with TPI says: “As a Virtuoso Member Agency, TPI advisors have access to the full suite of Virtuoso tools. The introduction of the Wanderlist program takes the opportunity for growth to a new level. Advisors can now work to secure a holistic view of their client’s travel plans.
“Vacation time is so valuable, and leisure time is a non-renewable asset, by engaging in this program, TPI Wanderlist Graduates help their client secure a long term personalized travel plan, that is purposeful and customized.”
